原始语种摘要: Using agency theory and prospect theory, this paper examines the motivational and cognitive determinants of investment escalation by multinational corporation (MNC)’s foreign subsidiary expatriate managers. This paper posits that the impacts of career incentive structure and negative framing are moderated by the individual-level cultural values of decision makers. Unlike previous studies that focused on the agency costs incurred by locally hired agents, this paper provides new insights into the agency costs incurred by expatriates assigned by the home country headquarters. This paper also provides suggestions that future research can fill the gaps in the literature on agency problems in MNCs.
